he takes office and a growing outrage over revelations how extensively the nsa has been spying both here and around the world. want to bringing in wolf blitzer out of washington. and wolf, first of all, this is an interesting situation. he is a republican and was covering the white house at the time in march of 2004 when he was the acting attorney general. this story is what a lot of folks talk about. he went to the hospital where that's where the attorney general ashcroft was. he was ill and comie refused to sign off on the domestic wiretapping program that was so controversial back then. there was a lot of pressure for ashcroft to sign and for comie to sign, as well. he said no, i'm not doing this and threatened to resign till he resolved the issue with president bush. now he says that the nsa and not the wiretapping but the spying is okay. that it's actually a reasonable thing to do. is he changing his tone here? >> not really because if you remember, i'm sure you do and a lot of viewers will remember, what he was really upset with and why he went to the hospital bed of then atto

is a good thing. i want to also ask you about the nsa and the concerns about the nsa becoming a rogue agency. reports today from "the washington post" denied by keith alexander just now, apparently, that the nsa, that our spies are actually unknowingly going into google and yahoo! centers and retrieving data. where does it end? >> well, i have grave concerns about this, andrea. there was a report that i saw that the taps of the phone may have even tapped the pope's phone. we've got to get to the bottom of this. i'll tell you, i have a suspicion about one of the things that's at the root of this. and it is the fact that the authorization for the use of military force passed one week after 9/11 is so broad and open-ended. as you know, the language in that authorization authorized the president to take action against those who committed the 9/11 attacks or their affiliates. that language, or their affiliates, without any limitation in time or geography, has led to a whole series of programs that i think are too open ended. one of the things that i want to explore as we look at correcting these
? >> well, let me say something about the nsa. i believe the nsa is filled with good patriotic people who want to do the right thing. they follow the orders they're given. the administration controls intelligence. the national intelligence framework is put together by the administration. it begins with the director of national intelligence, it goes to the white house, it's the president, it's the nsc the cabinet and then the framework is formed. now, what happens is, people add to it, state wants this, department of state wants to know this. or somebody else wants to know that. priorities are ranked. as i understand it these are the priorities. one, terrorism. two, support of our military abroad. three, nuclear counter proliferation. four, hard targets. and now cyber. and those are the main areas. so essentially the nsa is told to do certain things and it does it. what i think we need to do, we work very well with the house committee and leadership, mike rogers and congressman rupersberger is review of the intelligence framework of how all this gets together. what the criteria for inclusi

leaked last week, that the scope of the nsa's intelligence gathering extends to america's closest ally as broad. the wall street journal reports the national security agency ended a program that spied on as many as 35 world leaders after the white house ordered an internal review over the summer. senior officials say several programs have already been shutdown and others are expected to be closed at a later date. the report also states president obama spent nearly five years in office in the dark, unaware of the nsa's practices overseas. officials say the targets of these programs are not typically decided by the president but by the agency. yesterday congressman peter king defended the nsa's programs saying they should be viewed as a positive thing for everyone involved. >> the president should stop apologizing and stop being defensive. the reality is the nsa saved thousands of lives. not just the united states but also in france and germany and throughout europe. we're not doing it for the fun of it. this is to gather valuable intelligence which helps not just us but the europeans. >

because i think at nsa we are really worried about conflation of the public record. so what, using the terry stop standard means, the comparison to stop and rest. that would mean a police officer write down the reason for a stop and frisk as we do for the telephone metadata. only one of 22 supervisors approve the stopped and frisked before it would happen. and in our case, the data is all anonymous as opposed to the stop and frisk the point in front of you. the stop and frisk standard we have post in query audits every 90 days, as when a police department audits every 90 days what happens. and we also report to court every 30 days and get it free authorized every 90 days. so while yes, in a legal sense, the legal standard in the lives from the terry stop standard i think just those factors alone distinguished the use of that standard in this context and clearly evidence that the far, far more regulated and rigorous process than is feasible in the search context. >> thank you. i'm going to open with kind of a general question. since the revelation of the 215 program, which wasn't se
